Hymne aux fleurs qui passent

Lin Lee-Chen pays homage to the soul of the earth and of nature. This piece praises the great laws of Heaven and Earth, is sings the harmony and first principles that are Yin and Yang. It is a fresco in which the seasons sweep along with them the thousand beings that make up the universe. Yin and Yang no longer oppose, but complement each other and alternate to engendering the profusion of life, life marked by the complementary natures of birth and death, of movement and stillness. Here the choreographer summons up unforgettable ceremonies of an unusual grace.
Behind the title “Anthem to the Fading Flowers – The Flower Goddess” hides a powerful allegory of life and death, inspired by folk costumes, religious rituals and Taiwanese traditions handed down from one generation to the next. The infernal cycle of deaths and rebirths that Buddha learned to escape, as well as consideration of the flow of existence which carries all beings, both human and plant, led Lin Lee-Chen to compose this work as four pictures: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. She creates an on-stage atmosphere that is both spiritual and sensual, restoring to her ritual practices, trivialized by the wear and tear of time, all their symbolic significance, and with great care and artistry. A psalmody of prayers and invocations addressing the spirit world rhythm the dancers' meticulous rounded movements, in the strict tradition of Chinese opera. The use of multimedia techniques, especially video projection, allows the juxtaposition of spaces and times that at first sight appear separate, in an intense procession which is at the same time both traditional and modern, religious and pagan, artistic and philosophical.

Lin, Lee-Chen

Born in Taiwan in 1950, Lin Lee-Chen is a graduate of the Department of Dance at Chinese Culture University. She attracted attention among the artistic circle already during the 1970s as a dance teacher and choreographer at Chang-An Girls’ Junio High School, where a her dance productions - some involving as many as hundred performers - garnered national awards for five consecutive years and had an enormous influence on dance and theater productions in Taiwan. But it was her choreography and performance of « Don't Forget Your Umbrella » in 1978, her first solo production, that gained Lee-Chen Lin widespread critical attention and earned her the reputation of being “an astonishing new talent in Taiwanese performance arts”.

Her subsequent dance pieces and choreographic work on stage and screen only enhanced her reputation. Surprisingly, at the very height of her reputation, she retired from work in order to devote herself fully to her family. However, concerned about the rapid and dramatic decline of Taiwan’s traditional culture and arts in the face of a growing invasion of Western cultural forms, she felt compelled to return to the stage as a choreographer and director of her own company.

With the encouragement and support of many like-minded colleagues and kindred souls, she founded the Legend Lin Dance Theatre in 1995 with the goal of revitalizing and reaffirming Taiwanese culture and identity. « Miroirs de vie » and « Hymne aux Fleurs qui passent », the first fruits of this new mission, echo aspects of traditional Taiwanese rites and celebrate our relationship to the earth and nature’s own ritual cycles.

Following these two pieces, Lin Lee-Chen presents the final work of the series, « Song of Pensive Beholding », in 2009, the result of nine years of germination. This long-awaited piece completes the trilogy of Lin’s tribute to Heaven, Earth, and Man. In « Miroirs de vie », she explores the beauty and sadness of all things and all beings, seen and unseen; in « Hymne aux Fleurs qui passent », she portrays the connection between man and the spirit of nature; and in « Song of Pensive Beholding », the choreographer weaves her original rival myth with a compassionate vision, reflecting on the harm done to our environment and ourselves by human avarice. The interconnectedness of man, the spirits, and the gods permeates all of her work. In Lin’s world, all beings are co-existent, affecting one another.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (eLaC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
  On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
      - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
      - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
      - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
      - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

More recently, he launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created the website numeridanse.tv, an international video library for dance online.

His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.

Legend Lin Dance Theater

Artistic direction: Lee-chen Lin

Creation: 1995

The history of Legend Lin Dance Theatre is very much the story of its artistic director and choreographer Lin Lee-Chen. She founded the repertory company for the purpose of presenting large-scale performance works that reflect the spirit and culture of her native Taiwan. Inspired by local religious rituals and ceremonial rites celebrating the rhythms of nature and our place in it, the artistry of the Legend Lin Dance Theatre blends a lush visual aesthetics with a brilliantly original choreography that gives new meaning to the phrase “poetry in motion.”

A show-stealer at the Festival d’Avignon in 1998, « Miroirs de Vie » was inspired by the Jiao, a Daoist open-air ceremony held during the Ghost Festival in the seventh lunar month, when the angry spirits of the un-cared-for dead are temporarily allowed to return to the world of the living. Having grown up in the harbor town of Keelung, where the Jiao has been practiced for centuries, Lin Lee-Chen was a frequent witness to the power and beauty of this appeasement ceremony, and her « Miroirs de Vie » is an aesthetic tribute to this local cultural tradition.

In its many appearances overseas, the company has won praise from critics and audiences alike. Its « Hymne aux Fleurs qui Passent », which pays tribute to the cycle of the seasons and the complementary principles of Yin and Yang, garnered the Prix du Public at the 9th Biennale de la Danse de Lyon in 2000 and broke attendance records at the Festival de Otoño the following year.

In 2009, Legend Lin Dance Theatre presents the final work of the series, « Song of Pensive Beholding » after nine years. Inspired by watching the eagles at Keelung Harbor, Lin Lee-Chen’s hometown, the choreographer weaves her original tribal myth with a pensive eye, reflecting on the harm done to our environment and ourselves by human avarice. This long-awaited piece completes the trilogy of the choreographer's tribute to Heaven, Earth, and Man, and once again stuns the world stage.
